“Nice finnish style accommodation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

Cannot fault the location or the facilities of this hotel. Everything is relative new and in good condition and tastefully appointed. The only thing we are dissatisfied with is the Sauna set up.
We were looking forward to experience a real Finnish Sauna which is what we imagined we could do at this hotel but we were disappointed when we saw the Sauna is only available 2 evenings a week. Sorry but this is not good enough! You should make this knowledge available on your website so in the future guests can decide if this is ok or not.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

Sato HotelHome operates numerous apartments around Helsinki, generally requiring a minimum stay of around 4 nights. I stayed in a studio apartment in Kristianinkatu, about 10-15 minutes walk from the central station and Hakaniemi metro station. The apartment was spotlessly clean, though as it has recently been renovated still smelled quite strongly of paint. The bed was in an alcove with a second set of curtains, which usefully made it very dark, even allowing for Helsinki's white nights.

The kitchen area was arranged with a good range of IKEA utensils, a full size stove/oven, small dishwasher, microwave, coffee machine and slightly noisy fridge. Usefully, washing up liquid was provided, as well as coffee filters and a small starter pack including some ground coffee and milk sachets.

The TV was large and had a good picture; it came with a media centre that played CDs and DVDs. My only complaint was that the number of cable channels subscribed to was limited, and the only English language ones were Bloomberg News and Russia Today. But there were also 3 radio channels, including the excellent YLE Klassinen.

Access is via a 4 digit PIN code and security is low compared to most accommodation, but adequate for Helsinki which is a safe city. It's not easy to contact the landlords without a mobile phone, so I had to put up with a flickering light bulb.

These apartments are centrally located and are a lovely place to stay in Helsinki. Are comfortable, new, clean and very cosy. Mr. Petri is exceptionally helpful and accomodating. These apartments have everything that you need. We really liked the heated floor in the bathroom.We would not hesitate to recommend it. A home away from home.
